  • Excerpt: Polish author Andrzej Sapkawski's novels, detailing the exploits and struggles of the monster-slaying "witcher," were first adapted as comic books. A film, television series, and pen and paper RPG followed. Thanks to CD Projekt, the story is now playable in video game form on the PC.

  • Conclusion: Overall, The Witcher delivers on its promises. While an ardent RPGer might miss the expansive free roaming of Oblivion, the highly absorbing storyline (which has been deliberately avoided in this review so as not to spoil it for those who buy the game on this strength) coupled with a game that, for...

  • Summary: Don't be afraid of change. Even though The Witcher may scare off some people with inventive combat that replaces comfortable old rapid-fire clicking with rhythmic sword swinging, there is no need to avoid one of the deepest, most adult role-playing games to hit the PC in years.
  • Pros: Dark, foreboding world that looks, sounds, and feels lived in, Fantastic story populated by realistic NPCs with realistic problems, Innovative new combat mechanics add depth in place of mindless clicking, Cinematic visuals and a superb soundtrack
  • Cons: Could have done a better job introducing the new combat mechanics, Odd dialogue and somewhat cheesy voice acting

  • Conclusion: The best thing that The Witcher has going for it is that, despite the many technical issues, I can’t stay away from it. The intriguing narrative, interesting characters, extremely well-executed decisions/consequences system, and the fun action combat keep calling me.

The Witcher 2 review

Gamedot
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: If you have a PC capable of running The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings it’s worth your time. However if you have a more average spec PC you won’t be able to enjoy the game at its best, and even the 360 version planned in November will surely be a watered down release compared to the Superior PC...
  • Pros: The most lush graphics in any RPG today. A beacon of hope for future Adult games. Strategic challenging combat.
  • Cons: Tricky inventory system. Requires a Super Computer to play at its best.
